Do You Have The Cojones to Let Your Light Shine Through?

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

I want to believe that we are no longer under the old paradigm where change is painful.  That we have to go through trials and tribulations to come out on the other side.

In my therapist days it used to be called going through the dark night of the soul or the hero’s journey.  The dark night of the soul meant grappling with the bigger issues of why am I here and what is, if any, the value in my suffering?   The hero’s journey meant some huge Ulysses- like saga where we met on the road to our home a succession of demons and trials and tricksters of all sorts.

In many cases it meant withdrawing ourselves from our daily lives and our family, friends, and loved ones to go to the mountains in India and study under some guru who would point the way home.

Today, right now, I ab soul lutely believe that we can find our way back home through the path of joy…through the path of choosing to feel good.  I ab soul lutely believe that happiness is our birthright..and prosperity in all its lovely facets…and that the Universe has our back.  I ab soul lutely believe that the Universe loves us, adores us and has our back.

I ab soul lutely believe that we are light and liquid love and it is our mission and our delight to express that light and liquid love into the Universe and it is my sincere desire to have the cojones (balls) to live in these beliefs in spite of the labeled outside circumstances.  It takes courage.  After all, it’s a lot easier to say “I’m not happy and here’s why.”  (pull out of back pocket long laundry list of grievances)

Dear {insert your name here}

You are cordially invited to experience the most magnificent day of your life.  You may give yourself the most delightful thoughts and feelings.  You may give hugs to yourself and others til you bliss.  And you may sing at the top of your lungs “I’m gonna let this light of mine…shine shine shine  Enjoy the song!

Hug til you bliss,

Christine Marie M.A.

I Confess

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

I confess…confession is good for the soul..so, I confess.  Now I am having second thoughts.  Let me reconsider.  I may just be able to write today’s stuff and just not confess what I was going to confess.  Instead, I want to revisit those old belief systems that are well worn and oh so very comfortable.  A belief  so mightily ingrained that it can’t even be seen or spotted anymore.

It is truly part of the landscape.   Like a comfortable old night shirt~thread bare~barely hanging on~and a material diary of the last 15 years, an outmoded belief that really no longer serves you ~ yet, you continue to entertain it.  Yes, it knocks on your door and you let it in.  Not only do you let it in but you have the room lit with candles and mood lighting, there is some Barry White in the background, and you pour wine for the two of you from a box.  You entertain that belief..you serve it wine..and you may even have a roll in the hay with it.. In the morning you wake up…your mascara streaked, schmeared, and schmudged and you smell of cheap wine and pity.

Next time, when the door bell rings you can answer it..but..instead of inviting that old belief of lack, poverty, victimhood, constriction,or whatever you name it in to your head just say “Hi” and give it one of those Mickey D coupons for a free cone and say adieu or adios or sayonara, or even bon voyage.  Oh and forget I ever mentioned about the 15 year old thread bare nite sirt..and no, there is no stocking cap that goes with that.  It’s the truth I tell ya..the sacred truth.

Sayonara,

Bamboo Time

§ Filed under Relationships § No Comments

My first thought today is to continue with my Dirty Harry impersonation..that’s because at my core I believe that nothing exceeds like excess..and I tend to always go too far.  So, I shall pull the reins back and NOT do my Eastwood…but that shouldn’t keep you from still imagining me doing it..(te he te he)..While I have you under my control and in my power I will now implant the HRPuffinstuff song.. h r pufinstuff..hypnotizeddon’t hate me just cause I can do this stuff.

On my screensaver I have a pic of a bamboo forest.  Why?  It is an instant reminder to me about the Law of Gestation~the time it takes to manifest things from the non physical into the physical..once bamboo is planted it takes a long time before its tender little shoots even break ground…oh but when it does LOOK OUT.  THAT BAMBOO CAN GROW 80 feet in a week..(first warning~ I tend to speak in hyperbole).  But you get the point.  So..don’t quit.  don’t give up..Your dreams, like the tiny bamboo shoot, may not have broken the ground yet…  but it  still  growing underground and the Universe is arranging all its bamboo molecules so that once it breaks ground it can go from 0 to100 in a heartbeat.

I want to go to San Diego..lay on the beach..look at the ocean..enjoy the sea of humanity..But, alas, I am in Tucson.  Trips can be fun and enjoyable and this trip will be as well.  I decided that I will not turn around and go back to Tucson just because I am in Nevada.  I am just not in San Diego…yet. Just like those bamboo shoots have not broken ground yet.  But how many times have we given up on a dream or a desire because we hadn’t “seen” evidence of it, YET.??

Hence, a little thing I like to call BUFFER TIME.his pants are too big  What have you been gestating that hasn’t shown up in your 3-D world of experience YET?  Just because you’re not in San Diego are you gonna turn around and “go backwards” or even “quit”. C’mon. You’re made of tougher substance than that..In fact, you are made up of the same things the planet, the universe, the stars are made of…..Now, fold up your lawn chairs, get back in your camper, get out that crusty Atlas, fill up your gas tank and point yourself in the direction of San Diego.  You’ve got BAMBOO waiting.

Blessings,

Christine Marie M.A.

Do You Feel Like You Won the Lottery?

§ Filed under I feel like I won the Lottery, Law of Attraction, Prosperity § No Comments

Do ya?  Well, do ya?  feel lucky, that is.  Picture me doing my best Eastwood impression circa 1970.  I was watching the TLC channel on Saturday night…a show called How the Lottery Changed my Life.  Before you go thinking that I must have no life at all cause I am home on a Sat. night AND I am watching The Learning Channel hear me and hear me well:  “You don’t know me…uh-uh! don’t you go thinkin’ you know me cause you don’t know me.”

Anyway, I am getting somewhere with this…my point is this.  (long story short) ~from the show~husband and wife trying to have a baby for years…going to fertility clinic for years to no avail…finally the wife’s sister volunteers to act as a surrogate and have this couple’s baby.  The baby is born (darling girl) and everyday as the husband and wife look at this precious miracle they say aloud, “I feel like I won the lottery.”  Every day–several times a day. Soooo, one Christmas the husband buys the wife some scratch off tickets…and, yep…you guessed it.  They win the lottery!!

Now, as a Certified Law of Attraction Coach, this makes serious sense to me. We attract from our feelings.  And when we’re feeling great…appreciative…like we won the frickin’ lottery…the Law of Attraction or that Great Cosmic Mirror reflects right back to us what we are feeling. It is why it is so important that we begin to take responsibility for our feelings…when we feel better~life gets better.  My friend Max likes to say, “The better it gets-the better it gets.”  and I believe her because it is happening to me and many of the people in my circle.  You are worth choosing the better feeling thought.  It takes a little bit of time and commitment but it is sooo very worth it.  Feeling Example:  “I feel like my life sucks…there is a dark cloud over me.” or “I feel like I won the lottery.” Which thought is a better feeling thought?  I think it was Henry Ford that said, ” if you think you can or if you think you can’t-you’re right.”

Of course, I have seen manifesting ones desires happen very quickly…IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE…  But, in general, there is a time of gestation. Julie (my daughter and business partner) and I call this “Buffer Time“.  It is the time it takes to get from the non physical realm to the physical.  Next time, more on BUFFER TIME…

Blessings and Grit,
